Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with E: vote

I went for Enduro Racer. It's very nice fast and playable racer.

Exolon, like most Raf Cecco's games is too hard for me to really enjoy it.

And Elite, well I guess either you love it or you completely don't get it. And I don't get it

Re: Swinging ropes in games

Egghead Goes to Town used a big table of coordinates for speed, all pre-calculated in Sinclair BASIC Wow, calculating data in Spectrum Basic in 2017 is certainly retro :) Personally when I needed once some precalculated data for my game, I used Excel. Not very cool, I suppose ;) By the way, welcome...

Re: Nightshade or Gunfright?

I didnt notice, that this version is mentioned in zxdb
It's a crack/mod. I'm not sure what is the official policy of ZXDB about such stuff.

Sam's journey - a really impressive game for C64

Please don't lynch me for posting it on Speccy forum ;) So there is a new game for C64. Maybe not so new but it didn't see the discussion about it here or on WOS. It's called Sam's Journey and it's really impressive. Have a look: https://youtu.be/xp-_18hT6tQ As I understand it runs on standard C64 w...

Re: Action! A poor mans C for 8-bit computers.

There is actually a lot of undicovered potential in 8 bit Atari. Would you believe that today in 2018 people are still discover new graphic modes for this machine? :o As far as I know In Atari you can "program" your graphic mode. You place some data in special part of memory and it determines behavi...

Re: BBCode

I'll bump this old topic.

Today I was trying to post a Youtube video starting from some chosen time

Youtube generates such link for me:

Re: Action! A poor mans C for 8-bit computers.

I have heard about Action. People in Poland are still currently using it for writing games for 8-bit Atari. And these games are quite fast, l You should remember that Atari has sprites which makes probably eveything easier but you still can have some nice effects with it. Have a look at this. It's w...

Re: atariage blocking certain countries?

I have no problem with it too and I'm connecting from Eastern Europe ;) Maybe it's just Russia? Or something totally other?

Actually blocking an Atari site from traffic from Eastern Europe would be vey silly as 50% of active events in 8-bit Atari world are currently happening in Poland.

Re: ZAD Adventure System - Progress

I am not sure whether to create a C-style programming language, or simply let the end-user program directly in the bytecode language. The easier it will be, the more users you will have. I understand that "easy for user"="harder for you" so you may want to find your compromise. Personally I would g...
